More Info

The Perth Mint introduced their lunar series of coins in 1996. Each cycle lasts 12 years, with each year celebrating a different Chinese zodiac sign. Since the coins were introduced they have proven to be highly collectable, with most sizes selling out quickly.

Year of the Mouse

The lunar Year of the Mouse begins on January 25th, 2020. It is said that those born under this lunar zodiac sign are thought to be kind, smart, thoughtful and quick witted.  Other year of the mice (or rat) include 1972, 1984, 1996 and 2008.

Series III

The third series of lunar coins begins with these 2020 coins. If you would like to start collecting we suggest you buy this coin while you can. Older dates of lunar coins are often difficult to find.

Authentication Feature

A new addition to the 1oz, 2oz and 10oz coins is a micro-engraved letter within the design. It’s only visible under a magnifying glass giving buyers extra security when buying the coins.

Obverse

Most Australian coinage adopted a new obverse of Queen Elizabeth II in 2019. The lunar series did not use the new portrait and kept the fourth coinage portrait by Ian Rank Broadley instead. This was so the obverse of the coins remained uniform with previous years.

With the start of the third series, the Perth Mint have taken the opportunity to update the obverse of the coins. The 2020 coins showcase the new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, by Jody Clark. The design shows Elizabeth from the shoulders upwards.

Reverse

The reverse of the gold lunar coins features a modern design of a mouse on a stalk of wheat. The ‘P’ mint mark (standing for ‘Perth’) can be found on the left-hand side.

The Chinese character for ‘mouse’ can be found in the field, with ‘MOUSE 2020’ underneath. It was designed by Ing Ing Jong.
